As reported earlier today, Dr, Mats E. Eriksson, Associate Professor of Paleontology - Department of Geology at Lund University in Lund, Sweden sent BW&BK this very interesting MOTÖRHEAD tidbit: "I have just recently named a fossil after Lemmy Kilmister," Eriksson writes. "The perfect combination for a long-time fan of the band (and the music genre) and a professor of paleontology, as myself. So, not only is he already a legend in the music business but his name will have a permanent record in Science. The fossil in question is a c. 428 million year old jaw of an extinct, marine polychaete annelid worm found in the Silurian strata of Gotland, Sweden. Its scientific name is Kalloprion Kilmisteri."
